First, a baby update:
I am 28 weeks 5 days today. I saw my OB this morning and she skipped into the room making exclamations over how impressed she is with my health. My blood sugar is perfect. My iron level is perfect. My weight is perfect. My blood pressure is perfect. She is a happy doctor.
Baby girl is also perfect. Based on last week’s ultrasound, she is measuring in the 54th percentile, and doc says she’s about 2.5-3 lbs at this point. Her heart rate was in the 150s, and as usual, she moved away from the doppler as soon as she felt it there. She’s still transverse, but doc has promised me that we will get her into the appropriate position before birth. Right now, her head is in my left hip and her feet are wedged between my right hip and my ribs. The rib kicks were new this week, and I have to say that I actually prefer bladder kicks to rib kicks.
And a house update:
It turns out that buying a house is pretty stressful. Who knew? (Aside from everyone who has ever purchased a house.) Yesterday, I was fairly certain that my heart AND my brain were going to explode, but things are a bit more settled today.
Since our escrow length is contingent upon our sellers finding their new house, we could be moving anytime between the first and last weeks of June. They made an offer on a house a few days ago, and if they get it, we could start the 30-day clock as soon as tomorrow. If they don’t get it, they have until May 19th to find a place. Naturally, I am hoping that their offer goes through. I would LOVE to not be moving when I’m 37 weeks pregnant. But this “easy going and flexible” angle was what helped us get our offer to the top of the pile, so it’s worth it.
I have no idea what we did to get so lucky this week, but here’s a peek at our future house. These are photos from the listing. I am over the moon thrilled that we are going to have a dishwasher AND central air before baby girl’s arrival. It feels like we won the lottery. A really expensive lottery that we will be paying for over the next 30 years.
